Title I

SCHOOLWIDE PROGRAM INFORMATION

This letter is to inform you about Title 1.  Title 1 is a federal program that provides additional resources to schools that are impacted by poverty in the surrounding community.  Salt Lake City School District calculates Title monies based on the number of students who qualify for free lunch.

Our school qualifies for Title 1 monies.  We are a schoolwide Title 1 program, meaning that our Title 1 funds are used to benefit all students, not just those who qualify for free lunch.  Title 1 programs must supplement the existing the curriculum.  In other words, Title 1 funds helps us make better the programs and activities that we already have in place to help your child learn at high levels.

As a Title 1 school, we are committed to ensuring that you have access to information about state learning standards, the materials that we use to teach those standards, and the tests we use to show how students are progressing.  You should receive information about all of this from your child’s teacher in the first month of school.

RIGHT TO KNOW TEACHER QUALIFICATIONS

The certifications and qualifications of our staff are available in the front office. We also want to inform you that parents and guardians have the right to request specifics about the qualifications of their child’s teachers. If your child’s teacher is not considered Highly Qualified as defined by the federal government, we will notify you.

SHARED DECISION MAKING

Parents will be involved in making school decisions, writing school plans, and assessing the effectiveness of school programs. They will also work with the school to plan Parent Involvment activities. Please contact the front office for more information on how to be a part of this important work. We need your ideas!!

Parents can find more information on the School Community Council page. Shared Governance information can be found on the links below:

STUDENT PROGRESS

As a Title I school, we are required to show each year that students are progressing in math and reading/language arts. Title I federal funding supports student learning in these areas. The learning expectations grow every year so that each student is ready for middle school and high school to prepare for college and a career. Our students and teachers are now focused on this year’s learning standards to see another year of success.

In the spring of 2014, your student took one or more of the SAGE tests. These tests were designed to measure the more challenging state standards in grades 3-12 in English language arts, mathematics, and science. Please click here to review Mountain View's data SAGE data.

School Improvement Plan - The School Improvement Plan serves as a road map that provides clarity to specific priorities and actions that are most important during the next school year. The plan will help ensure the focus of all stakeholders toward an aligned understanding of the implementation and progress of our school goals.

Estimados Padres,

Esta carta es para informarle sobre el programa de educación bajo el Título I. Título I es un programa federal que proporciona recursos adicionales a las escuelas que se ven afectadas por la pobreza en la comunidad circundante. El Distrito Escolar de Salt Lake City calcula el dinero bajo el programa de Título 1 basado en el número de estudiantes que califican para el almuerzo gratis.

Nuestra escuela califica para los fondos bajo el programa de Título I. Somos una escuela Título 1, que significa que nuestros fondos de Título I se utilizan para el beneficio de todos los estudiantes, no sólo a aquellos que califican para el almuerzo gratis. Los programas bajo el Título I deben complementar el actual currículo. En otras palabras, los fondos del Título I nos ayudan a mejorar los programas y actividades que ya tenemos para ayudar a su hijo a aprender en un nivel más alto.

 

Como una escuela Título I, estamos comprometidos a asegurar que usted tiene acceso a la información sobre los estándares de aprendizaje del estado, los materiales que utilizamos para enseñar tales estándares y las pruebas que utilizamos para mostrar cómo están progresando los estudiantes. Usted debe recibir información acerca de todo esto del  maestro de su hijo durante el primer mes de clases.

Un aspecto importante del Título I es comunicarse con las familias. Usted debe oir regularmente del maestro de su hijo acerca de su progreso. No dude en ponerse en contacto con los maestros en cualquier momento para discutir el progreso de su hijo.

La certificación y calificación de nuestro personal están disponibles en la oficina. Se le invita a pasar a revisar estas certificaciones y calificaciones en cualquier momento. Solo pase por la oficina y pregunte o llame para hacer una cita.

Los padres estarán involucrados en el proceso de tomar decisiones concerniente a la escuela, escribiendo los planes escolares, y evaluando la eficiencia de los programas escolares.

Nos importa la asociación entre la escuela y el hogar. Para promover esta asociación, tenemos una variedad de actividades programadas para que usted participe incluyendo la actividad de la segunda taza de café (que se lleva a cabo todos los viernes por las mananas a las 8:30 ) Asociación de Padres y Maestros, y Consejo Comunitario Escolar.

Esperamos con anticipación trabajar con usted este año. Por favor déjeme saber si tiene preguntas o inquietudes y comuníquese conmigo al 801-974-8315.
